We were just glad we took the advice of some guys we met in our hotel. The restaurant was spotless, the service was attentive, the food was excellent English/Egyptian food. We also had a superb Yorkshire pudding on a Sunday :) and the last day I had an apricot taijin that was simply superb. We loved it and the owners... More

Our hotel suggested this restaurant as a good place to have dinner and it was good and tasty food. Service was very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint is that it is cash only -- so be prepared.

I went to Egypt to celebrate a special occasion - and wanted to choose a great restaurant for that reason. The reviews on Trip Advisor pointed me here. 6,000 miles later - it was a disappointment. The reviews do not reflect reality. Things to know ... 1) Cash Only without warning - We had a large party - and our... More

We have visited and reviewed the Lantern several times in the past, it is consistently good, which is why we keep going there. We returned to Luxor this year after a four year absence, and the Lantern was the first restaurant we went to. In spite of the time gap, we were warmly welcomed by Debbie as old friends. The...

We visited here for the first time and were treated so well and had a lovely welcome. The food was excellent, I especially loved the special starter, piri piri prawns, I could eat more ! My friend adored the plum and apple crumble with ice cream and custard, it was delicious ! We will definitely go back.
